Speak Up for a Better Alabama!

An Initative for Fair Representation

With help from our grassroots partners, we organized a statewide redistricting program. Our program prioritizes public education, outreach, and organizing across Alabama to advocate for fair and equal representation for all Alabamians.

Improving the fairness of our redistricting process is the foundation by which we create more balanced, equitable representation. A more reflective representative body ensures all Alabamian’s voices have the opportunity to be heard and contribute to determining Alabama’s policies and priorities.

election management monitors

In 2021 we will be launching what we hope will become a permanent election management watchdog program to compensate for the loss of the preclearance provision of the federal Voting Rights Act (VRA) which eliminated the early warning system of state and county proposed voting and election changes along with the opportunity to object to them under Section 5 of VRA.

By establishing an Election Management Watchdog Program, we will ensure there is an ongoing, systematic method of compiling precinct and state level election management changes that impact voting and/or elections. With volunteer attendance at County Board of Registrar meetings we can document changes and precinct-level voting changes or irregularities, especially changes that may result in suppressing the vote, particularly in communities of color and where past irregularities have been identified.

AEPN will compile information and share that information publicly so that Alabama voters can stay informed, understand precinct-level or other changes that may impact their ability to participate in the electoral cycle, and to hold public officials accountable.
